About Nuvu Studio
NuVu brings creative education to students around the world. Its mission is to empower the next generation of young designers, entrepreneurs, makers and inventors who will impact their communities and world through their work and ideas. NuVu’s pedagogy is based on the architectural studio model in which students learn through hands-on, interdisciplinary and collaborative design projects. Guided by experts, NuVu students explore real-world problems and immerse themselves in the creative process. NuVu has three main focus areas: (1) NuVu The Innovation School, a full-time innovation school for middle and high schoolers in Cambridge, Massachusetts (USA); (2) NuVuX, an initiative to support schools in designing and running studio-based programs onsite; and (3) Nufolio, an online studio management platform for hands-on learning and collaboration.
Saeed Arida is the Founder and CEO of NuVu Studio. Dr. Arida received his PhD in Design Computation as a Presidential Fellow at MIT, where his doctoral research examined the intricacies of the creative process and the nature of creativity. This work explored how an educational environment can nurture creative learning, which formed the pedagogical framework for NuVu. Prior to studying at MIT, he earned his Bachelor of Architecture from Damascus University in Syria.
